As his record suggests – 27 races for 1 win – AGNET BALE (4) struggles to be the best dog on the day but should find this company easier than most events he has contested of late. MCIVOR RUSTY (7) rarely runs a bad race and will also find this race easier than previously. VERY JIGGLING (2) will be better for her last start here and can show improvement. OSEYE BALE (1) can feature prominently.
BALT’S FLYING (4) was beaten by a handy type three starts back and will be hard to beat. TROJAN PACKAGE (7) can begin well and give a good sight. KEENAN ROCKS (6) should be strong in the run home. With the scratching of the 2, CHILLOUT COOKIE (1) goes into exotics.
SHIVERS (3) might have the most upside in this race and has performed over longer so the distance is no issue. REZZIE’S CHOICE (2) ran well two weeks ago and this looks a suitable race. At her best, MAJOR BOURBSKI (6) would be a massive winning chance but I would prefer her drawn inside. ANOTHER EPISODE (1) is the best of the rest.
TIME FOR PEACE (3) has an incredibly fast PB here and will appreciate the drop in class from recent racing. ASTON GLOW (2) has an abundance of early speed and ability. CODE BLUE SUE (8) can’t be discounted. REAR VIEW MIRROR (7) ran an impressive placing in a Healesville Cup heat two back and possesses early pace.
RANAKO BALE (1) should appreciate the draw and can’t be left out of your numbers. ROMEO BALE (2) is dropping steeply in class and has a good top-3 strike rate. CHILL OUT WEBBY (3) will be strong in the run home and TRICKSTER CABANG (5) could run well.
COLLINDA PATTY (2) is going to be short in the market and rightfully so, she is the recent 600m Speed Star winner and Sandown track record holder and while the step back in trip isn’t a positive, she will run serious time with clear air. BOP BOP (1) rarely runs a bad race and if the 2 does anything wrong, he will capitalise. MAELYNN BALE (4) has been racing well and WESTSIDE WARRIOR (6) ran well last start but would prefer to be drawn inside.
EAT MY DUST (4) was ultra-impressive at Sandown three starts ago, winning in 29.54 and can bring that form here. COTERIE (6) loves this track & distance and should vie for the early lead. BLAZING FURY (1) has won three in a row and can make it a fourth while TARGET MASTER (8) is very talented but is unlikely to feature form the wide draw.
MERLOT (8) has been knocking the door down for a win in stronger company than this and he can breakthrough if he can avoid being posted wide early. STARLIGHT DUSTY (1) is an exciting prospect who has won his last two over the middle distance, both from this draw. REDZIN (5) is a greyhound that always needs an ounce of luck but has the ability to figure in the finish. HORIZON PRINCESS (4) has early speed.
